As there's occasional grumbling about the difficulty of embedding Bandcamp releases in this editor, here's my writeup on the subject, including a simple(r) solution that's far from optimal, but it works.
Bandcamp release id is AFAIK actually a WordPress article id, a numeric string that's more or less random from our point of view, so it can't be guessed.
The id is not included in a Bandcamp release's URL, but embedded (multiple times in different ways) within the HTML of the release page, so manual extraction requires viewing the source and knowing what to look for.
The way to get the id from the Bandcamp page without viewing the source is to click Share / Embed (under the release image), which opens an accordion below the link with a second link, Embed this album. Clicking it will open a Customize dialog, where you can select by clicking any style you want to get to the next step, where you get the Embed HTML code in a text input (the one starting with <iframe...). The embed code contains the release id within the iframe tag's src attribute, e.g.
https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=140089158/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/tracklist=false/artwork=small/transparent=true/ where you can see the release id as a value for the album parameter (bold emphasis); this is what you want for this editor's Bandcamp embed dialog. Paste the embed HTML to an editor and copy the release id, then click the editor's Bandcamp embed button, paste the id and Bob's your uncle. I used to paste the whole embed HTML to the dialog's text field, then delete everything before and after the id, but YMMV. This is difficult and sucks donkey derrière, although I'm quite quick at it.
Therefore, the currently easiest way is to use the bookmark kludge above. Let me know if you come up with a better one without having to delve into the forum software's innards.
I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥
